Interesting article on how Apple can update even its latest software model to fix security bugs. it is this aspect which the USG is challenging and wants Apple to use to disable the "no more than 10 times the wrong password, else the data will be destroyed" feature and allow it to be able to get into the phone using brute force techniques which will not destroy the data on the phone.
